Chaney enters transfer portal, which was probably expected by Musselman

After landing graduate transfer Justin Smith last week, forward Reggie Chaney has apparently entered the NCAA’s transfer portal, according to multiple published reports Monday.

The guess is Eric Musselman probably had an idea this was how things were going to play out as he had 14 players on scholarship for 13 spots.

Chaney, from Tulsa by way of Frisco, Texas, finally decided his up-and-down path at Arkansas was too much down and is the second player to take that route since Jalen Harris transferred to Georgetown earlier.

Chaney started two games during his freshman year, then mixed in seven starts with three games where he didn’t even get into the game.

Chaney’s transfer will leave just three players that have played for the Hogs previously … if Isaiahg Joe foregoes the professional level and comes back to school. The others are Desi Sills and Ethan Henderson.

Arkansas’ roster us currently at the 13-scholarship limit, but if Joe leaves Musselman the option of adding a graduate transfer who could play immediately.
